One year ago, Hurricane Sandy took an enormous toll on the East Coast, with New York City being particularly hard hit. In this mini documentary produced by critically acclaimed filmmakers Supermarche and titled Meals Per Hour, we chronicle our collaboration with Food Bank For New York City at Metro World Child, to deliver meals to hard-hit residents of the Far Rockaways.
Prior to this documentary, we pledged 250,000 meals to area residents. After the documentary was produced we initially pledged to donate one meal for every view the documentary received for one month, up to an additional 250,000 – which would have brought us to a total of 500,000 meals delivered. Thanks to the inspiring participation of viewers, we upped our donation to 1 million meals. In total, we donated 1,250,000 meals to the Food Bank For New York City.
Thanks for your support!
